As we reported in December, Dustin Diamond allegedly stabbed a man at the Grand Avenue Saloon in Wisconsin after the two got into an argument that involved the actor's fiancée Amanda Schutz.

On Wednesday, the trial for the Saved by the Bell star's reckless endangerment charge began, however, the attention wasn't on the 38-year-old…
It was on his lawyer, Thomas Alberti!
Ozaukee County Judge Paul Malloy noticed a car in the courthouse parking lot that had a message written on its back window that read:
"Good luck to Dustin & Amanda"
When questioned about the inappropriate sign, Alberti admitted it was his doing!
Well apparently the lawyer's words of encouragement to his client were not appreciated by Judge Malloy, who was absolutely furious!
"I'm telling you right now, any more shenanigans like that and you'll find yourself in contempt faster than fast."
Holy crap he's angry!
While Alberti recognized it wasn't the smartest thing to do, he claims he had good intentions!
"They're just good people. I want to put on a good defense for them. What they did wasn't wrong. We're going to prove that in court, and no more messages on cars. We'll do it in the courtroom."
Diamond has pleaded not guilty to all of his charges. Schultz was charged with disorderly conduct.
We just hope justice is brought down on those responsible! And please Thomas… no more signs!
